Very well put.

The very fact that Thanos did not deign to dirty his hands with Loki shows that their relationship was one of quite unequal power, no matter how much bravado Loki tried to show when talking to The Other.
This is too.

I like the addition of bad guys crossing bad guys in these films. Adds a whole new dynamic.
